Irony? Coincidence? Tender Mercy!

Yesterday my mind was turned to peace, particularly the peace that can come during trials.  I even went so far as to reference the challenge of waves and wind and storms.  Why did my mind turn to those things? 

So that this morning when I was awakened at 5:00 am with a tsunami warning, my mind was instantly turned to the need for my Savior, and the promise of peace and calm during chaos.

We are sitting in our 12th floor hotel room in the Marriott at Waikiki Beach.  Waiting.  Wondering.  Hopeful.  We don't feel in danger.  We are anxious but thankful.  Brian and I are traveling with our good friends Walt and Cindy Myers.  We are gathering for a devotional.  We have brown licorice and Dots.  We should be good.

Thank you for your prayers.

I'm praying for your safety and that your children are calmed during this anxious moment. You're devotional will be amazing.
